Italian Golf Open, part of the European Tour, represents an important event for all athletes or golf lovers thanks to a compelling show in which golf champions and young talents will challenge.
Italian Golf Open, almost a century of success
It’s a long history that of the Italian Golf Open which started 90 years ago, in 1925, on Stresa green: in its first edition, Italian Francesco Pasquali won the tournament, playing in suit, as it was common at the time. From the second edition on, there were many famous professional golf players taking part to the tournament, among which Henry Cotton, Italian senator Agnelli, Gianni’s grandfather: a choice directed to give more prestige and fame to the tournament, attracting English players.
After a break during Second World War, Italian Golf Open was back again in 1947 with many victories and good results for Italian players until 1960, when the tournament saw another stop of 10 years. In 1972 Italian Golf Open started to be part of the European Tour, taking on the green great golf champions and talents such as Greg Norman, 87-tournament winner and member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, Severiano Ballesteros, who ranked top worldwide in 1988 and José Maria Olazabal, 29-tournament winner and among the 10 best golf players in the world for 300 weeks.
During its 72 editions, managed by Federazione Italiana Golf since 2003, Italian Golf Open has been displayed on the main Italian greens, from Turin to Rome, from Milano to Como, giving the chance to spread golf all over Italy. Golf prestige and beauty, surrounded by nature and based on respect of the rival, drew the attention of exclusive sponsors such as Rolex, Damiani, Telecom, BMW and Lindt. Last edition, the 71st one, sposored by Damiani, was at Circolo Golf Torino, in Fiano, and it gained a great success, with almost 35 thousands spectators which attended to a high-level tournament, whose winner was South African Hennie Otto.
